Eight Actors Needed for College Thesis Film “The Wish” – Bronx, NY

Project: The Wish
Casting Calls Category: Thesis Film
Location: Bronx, NY

The Wish is a film that takes place in 2012 and is about a bold and cocky middle class black man who gets cursed, by an angel-extraterrestrial, for hating himself for being black and for wishing to be white. The man is Malcolm Little and he is a supervisor for a banking firm in New York City. One day, after work, Malcolm bumps into a mysterious black woman by the name of Jewel. While Malcolm bumps into Jewel, she whispers something to him, which leads to a heated conversation between the two. During the conversation, Malcolm repeatedly says to Jewel that he hates himself for being black and wishes to be white. Toward the end of the conversation, Jewel tells Malcolm that if he says that he wishes to white one more time, she will punish him. Toward the end of the conversation, Malcolm, ignoring what she said, boldly tells Jewel, one last time, that he wishes to be white, which causes her to give him a curse that changes him into an artificial and/or deformed looking white man, and which also causes her to reveal to him that she is really an angel in human form. After Malcolm gets the curse, he goes through trials and tribulations that will either help him to change his way of thinking, or to totally sell his soul to become white.

I need eight people for this film, and I plan on starting it from early February to late May. The project is unpaid, but all of my actors will receive two copies of my film after the post-production process and after I display it to my professors.
I will only accept submissions from people who live in New York City, particularly those from the Bronx or Manhattan.
I need about eight actors.

1. A dark skinned, stocky, four foot tall, black woman in her late twenties or early thirties.

2. A dark skinned, big boned, five foot tall, black woman in her late twenties or early thirties. If this woman has a five year old son who she doesn’t mind allowing to act in the film, that would be a plus. There are scenes in my film that involves showing a mother abuse her son; it’s very deep.

3. A dark skinned, thin, five foot tall, black man in his late twenties or early thirties.

4. A buff, five foot tall, black man in his late twenties or early thirties.

5. A six foot tall black man in his late twenties or early thirties with an average build.

6. A six foot tall black man in his late twenties or early thirties with an average build.

7. A six foot tall black man in his late twenties or early thirties with an average build.

I want all of my actors to know that I won’t be starting the shoot until early February, but let me know if you’re interested sometime in January or as early as possible. I also want all of my actors to know that I will send you the script to my film as soon as I know that you are committed to the project.
